my scoops after a sunday of hunting our local flea market all for under $50.00! 

i took the skirt hemmer, and used it for a stand for the "forever" collage i put together.

i got the idea for using the hemmer as a stand from a fellow junker....i'll do a search and figure out who.  i think it was jim though. yep, it was jim healy..his is very refined i must say!

the collage was easy! #1 take a loonie store canvas(a loonie store is what we canucks call a dollar store), paint  it all one color.

#2 use an iron on decal(like for t shirts) and iron on, tricky and finicky, but do-able

#3 cover it all with acrylic medium, and use it to glue down an old sewing pattern, smooth it out

you're done!

Pattern or design used: My own design - forever tattoo collage
